commonspace.eu is based in The Hague, the Netherlands, where its core team of analysts work with partners and contributors from across Europe and beyond to help understand and explain complex geopolitical issues. Its readership includes decision makers and opinion shapers, seeking to put global news and events in a wider context.
commonspace.eu provides a platform for diverse views and opinions. All contributions must adhere to a set of guidelines contained in the site’s code of conduct, which aims to ensure respect for free speech and tolerance; excludes any material which inflames racial, religious or political hatred; and ensures respect, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation and cultural identity.
commonspace.eu is a space for many views and opinions but takes a principled position on issues where necessary.
commonspace.eu was established in 2011, to contribute to the public debate in and about the Caucasus and the region's relations with Europe, focusing primarily on the need for peace in the region, on the value of regional cooperation, and on strengthening relations between the countries of the region and Europe.
On 1 May 2019 LINKS Europe took over the ownership and management of commonspace.eu, after which the focus of the website expanded beyond the Caucasus to Europe and its neighbourhood east and south.
